Design Team Inspiration
The design team has made the most amazing samples! We also have a video at the end to inspire you! Remember to click on the person’s name to see all of the details and leave these wonderful DT girls some comment love!
Audrey‘s color palette is so gorgeous with an ombré of yellow to pink shades! She stenciled with Cloud Background Stencils over the top, then doubled up the cloudy fun with Simple Puffy Cloud Frames! It’s the perfect backdrop for the Fly High image! She also included a sentiment from Offset Sayings: Everyday!
I love how Marine added a colorful Offset Sayings: Everyday sentiment to her birthday card! She colored the outlined greeting in colors to coordinate with the cool tones of her Peacock Before ‘n Afters scene!
Grace created an amazing sky! She first inked the background then stenciled the clouds with Yeti pigment ink. Once the ink dried, she added white gel pen details.
Then Grace added a super fun Magic Color Slider on top of the cloud background. As you raise the tab, an amazing, stenciled Corner Rainbow is revealed along with the colorful Fly High hot air balloon. To learn more about our Magic Color Slider, check out this intro video.
And then she finished this amazing graduation card with a greeting combining Big Scripty Words, Fly High and a Fancy Wavy Banner!
Chari‘s Darling Daffodils card is so gorgeous and shows us how Offset Sayings: Everyday greetings go perfectly with all the card designs you can imagine!
Elena gave her Really High Five critters umbrellas and a pinwheel from Elephant Parade Add-On to create lots of whimsy! The subtly stencils clouds in the background are a beautiful way to highlight the fun and send some smiles!
Wow, how cool is this card by Elise?! She covered her card with Vertical Rainbow Stripes Washi tape and framed it with a Stitched Rectangle Frame. Then she popped up her white embossed Offset Sayings: Everyday greeting to really make a statement!
Kara used Elephant Parade Add-On to create an encouragement card is so amazing! I love the watery look of the inky background and how the outlined greeting lets the pretty watercolor shine through!
Megan‘s Shadow Box Card is a perfect blend of old and new! These cute images are from one of our very first sets, Critter in the ‘Burbs, and it’s still a favorite! It’s so fun to see them come out to play with the Cloud Background Stencils to set the scene!
Elise‘s simply amazing card features a bold greeting with Offset Sayings: Everyday and the beautifully stenciled rainbow balloons! So, if you make up a bunch of these and you will never be late with a birthday card again!
These colorful stenciled clouds add so much happiness to Caly‘s adorable birthday card! She also used Fly High, Offset Sayings: Everyday and Scalloped Rectangle Stackables.
This bright and happy birthday card by Lynnette came together with color inspiration from the Really Rainbow paper! She stamped the Offset Sayings: Everyday outlined birthday greeting, then colored it to coordinate with the paper. And then she finished the design with some Elephant Parade Add-On balloons!
All the colors of the rainbow are hanging out on Latisha‘s adorable thank you card! The smiley faces look so adorable on the stenciled clouds!
And now Chari has a special project featuring Cloud Background Stencils and Offset Sayings: Everyday to inspire you!
Chari creates a get-well card that is so sweet using the featured sets and Elephant Parade Add-On! You can watch the video below or click HERE to watch at our YouTube channel.
